“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” -Maya Angelou
Employers today require new competencies learned through arts training, from critical and creative thinking to teamwork and problem solving. Strengthen these competencies in yourself – and develop new talents – by enrolling in Peck School of Arts GER courses in art and design, dance, film, music or theatre.

Expand your mind and your skillset by earning GER credits through Wisconsin’s only comprehensive school of the arts.
